My clients stories
Here are some of my clients' stories about their journey and experiences
"I feel that focusing on more fruit and vegetables in the smoothies has done me good.
"I am more energetic, healthier and the craving for sweets is gone."
Thinking about eating more protein at the same time as eating carbs and fat in roughly normal amounts feels healthy.
I will not exclude or drastically reduce any intake.
The whole makes all the difference.
The diet is easy to understand. Easy to get started and maintain new habits.
To think that an extra intake of carbohydrates before training allows me to perform so much better - wonderful.
The fact that my ideal weight has arrived is just a bonus."

"I'm an amateur hobby mtb cyclist who rides in the woods because it's fun, about 3-4 hours a week. I found it concrete and tangible and easy to grasp.
For me, I thought there wouldn't be much difference in what I ate or how I would experience cycling. But it turned out to be the opposite, it was super instructive to start measuring and weighing intake to really feed the "machine" the right amount of protein, carbs and fat".
I apparently ate far too little protein and carbs and often spunked out after 1 hour on the bike usually. It only took 3-4 days of the right amount of nutrition and I felt strong as a bear on the bike and the first session longer than 2 hours I felt no energy dip at all and even my cycling buddies noticed that I seemed to have a lot of speed in my legs.
Despite very small adjustments in what I eat, after a couple of weeks it became challenging to keep track of the amounts as I was making dinner for the kids and so on, so I've been slacking on checking the amounts and unfortunately it was quickly noticeable. The depots that you build with the right amount, get emptied quickly it seems and I don't feel nearly as strong anymore on the bike. So there are no prohibitions or quick fixes and it's certainly not a diet Kristina is pushing on you, she gave me great tools and knowledge that really makes a difference. The only missing link is myself who needs to take and keep better control of energy intake for the rest of my life and not just for weeks. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Kristina's fantastic coaching that deals with both mentality and nutrition is great.
Henrik Holmqvist 36 years old, bikes for fun, 3-4 hours/week
"I've been cycling and training goal-oriented for several years and in recent years I've taken up triathlon. That means many sessions and hours a week. I've made progress, but I've felt that something was missing. Being interested in training is one part of the whole picture. Other parts are sleep and nutrition. Just diet and nutrition (before, during and after training) are areas I've been curious about and read a bit about online. When Kristina offered me to try out a diet plan, I happily accepted.
I was given a written diet plan based on my weight and amount of exercise, as well as guidance on nutritious ingredients and good examples of breakfast, lunch, dinner and smoothies. We had follow-up coaching sessions after a week or so where we went into more detail about my training and diet and what my intake looked like when training. After a few more weeks, we had another coaching session where the focus was even more on getting enough carbohydrates in during training to be able to push hard even at the end of the sessions and reduce the risk of getting sick after intense training.
It has now been about 8 weeks since I started following the dietary advice and I can state the following:
I eat the right diet and the right amount. A mix of protein, fat and carbohydrates and lots of greens. This has meant that my sweet tooth has been reduced, which in turn has led to a small but significant weight loss (ratio watt/kg).
I generally think more about eating and drinking right and with a good mix.
Correct intake during training (we have increased the amount of energy during the sessions such as sports drinks and intake of other carbohydrates) which allows me to recover better and get more out of the training and I do not risk getting sick after intense periods.
What about the effect in terms of endurance, speed and strength? It's been too short a time to tell, but I'm convinced it will have an effect. The alternative would have been to continue in the same path and that would definitely not have contributed to any development.

"What I like about the set-up is that it's a long-term plan we've set up. It's not about making quick wins, it's about cementing a change where bad habits are replaced by good ones.
The approach is very individualised and not controlled in detail by what you can and can not do. The regular coaching helps to steer you towards the goal you have set, while providing an opportunity for corrections if necessary."
